Colbeck was faced with questions during the meeting as to whether he had brought his allegations of electoral fraud to the state attorney general.
Nessel confirmed in his Twitter thread that Colbeck “never filed a voter fraud complaint” with the Michigan attorney general’s office.
“If he had, we would have thoroughly investigated this claim,” she said.
“Colbeck’s assertions aside, intentionally making a false declaration of criminal activity to law enforcement is itself a crime,” Nessel continued. “It is my experience that is often the reason why some reports are not made.”
